Vegetarian Comfort Food Recipes

Vegetarian Comfort Food Recipes | Naturally EllaI like to think that the vegetarian comfort food I make is a direct mashup of my midwestern upbringing and my current California state of mind. They are meals that are (or feel) rich and are rooted in many recipes I knew as a kid. However, the recipes are heavy on fresh produce. The result is a list of vegetarian comfort food recipes that can please an entire family but pack a good amount of nutrients. Below is just the beginning of what’s in the archives. The good news? A lot of these are family favorites that even my little guy with eat.

There’s also a few companies making some lovely pasta from locally grown grains- look for these at your local Co-op or Whole Foods.
